|Pampa, Texas, alternative rockers OddFellas release their self-titled debut EP via Pavement Entertainment. Odfellas is available to stream and buy on all major platforms HERE. The EP features raw music and true words. OddFellas encourages everyone to be themselves and not follow the crowd. There is power and pride in being odd.|
|WALK ON BY|
|Earlier this summer, OddFellas premiered the music video for the single “Walk On By.” This alt-rock jam sheds light on the darker sides of relationships. When matters take a turn for the worse and your partner doesn’t respect you, sometimes the best approach is to leave and continue moving forward for yourself.|
Breaking out in the summer of 2017, OddFellas is a relatively new band, but that doesn’t mean they haven’t taken the scene by storm. By playing live shows non-stop since their formation, they have been honing their sound, performances, and have quickly become treasured Texas favorites, while also branching out to new fans regionally. Throughout 2018 they had been playing shows every weekend and supporting some of today’s top name national acts, as well as playing renowned festivals such as SXSW, Hell & Heaven Fest (Mexico City), Rocklahoma, and Sturgis Buffalo Chip.

The Outfit, from Chicago, have been creating a buzz since coming on to the rock scene. Their first single “Soldier Boy,” released in 2018, secured the #34 spot on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Chart. The band isn’t re-inventing the wheel, and it never tries to; that’s its charm. The three words to describe the band are Original, Bold, Rock. The Outfit shows they have the chops of veteran musicians, yet the forward thinking attitude to make an impact with a fresh unique sound for today’s music scene.
The new single “Viking” has been received enthusiastically by crowds at the band’s recent performances, including the Rock USA festival earlier this summer. This crowd favorite is available for streaming and download now. The band has also released a brand new lyric video for “Viking.” Check out the new song here: https://smarturl.it/outfit_viking

ABIGAIL WILLIAMS Announces New Album, “Walk Beyond the Dark,” Out November 15 via Blood Music
Listen to the New Single, “I Will Depart,” Streaming Now
North American Tour Dates to be Announced Soon
The black sheep of the black metal scene, ABIGAIL WILLIAMS, returns with their boldest and most diverse offering to date, Walk Beyond the Dark, available November 15 via Blood Music.
The band recently revealed the first single from the album, “I Will Depart,” whetting fans’ appetites for ABIGAIL WILLIAMS‘ highly-anticipated fifth album. Watch the lyric video for “I Will Depart” here: https://youtu.be/fe9bsZuW2Wk.
“It’s been four years since the last album,” says ABIGAIL WILLIAMS leader Ken Sorceron. “That seems like quite a long time. Life, death, countless other musical endeavors, and all sorts of distractions kept getting in the way, delaying its completion again and again. Over that time, I wrote over 20 songs that I was actually pretty happy with. When it finally came time to record, I narrowed it down to the seven that appear here, as they seemed to fit the best together and make the statement I wanted to make here and now.”
Equal parts introspection and extremity, Walk Beyond the Dark is a testament to the band’s journey across the years – all the miles they’ve travelled, all the trials endured, all the mud thrown at them, all to keep doing what they love, on their own terms and without compromise.
Throughout all of these storms and tribulations remains band leader and songwriter, vocalist and mastermind Ken Sorceron. In so many ways, Sorceron himself is ABIGAIL WILLIAMS, its heart, mind and spirit. Deftly wielding the forces of light and dark in skilled measure. Icy guitars and bleak atmospheres encircle. Rapturous bursts of string accompaniments penetrate the melancholic futility of shadow and despair. Powerful guitars shift between slithering rhythms, contemplative grooves and all-out assaults.
Songs like visceral opener “I Will Depart” and the torrential “Into the Sleep” take aspects and elements from each of the band’s previous iterations – the gleaming metallic riff-work of In the Shadow of a Thousand Suns, the seething rage of In the Absence of Light, the grim grandeur of Becoming, the moody melodic menace of The Accuser – and weave them together into something that’s far more than the mere sum of its parts.
The studio lineup for Walk Beyond the Dark also features Bryan O’Sullivan on bass and Mike Heller drums, along with featured artists by Chris “Kakophonix” Brown (cello), Andrew Markuszewski (guitar), Justin McKinney (guitar) on select tracks. The album was mixed by Lasse Lammert (Warrel Dane, Alestorm, Gloryahmmer).
Says Sorceron, “Mike Heller and Bryan O’Sullivan killed it. I couldn’t have asked for better people to play on this album, and they really took things and brought them to life. Chris Brown added the extra flourishes on top, with the string parts that really accented the haunting nature of it all and contrasted with the extreme stuff perfectly. Then all of that got put into Lasse Lammert’s hands and he mixed and mastered it all into perfection. It’s been a long road, but it turned out better than I imagined and I’m stoked to finally get these songs out there.”
Walk Beyond the Dark tracklisting:
1. I Will Depart
2. Sun and Moon
3. Ever So Bold
4. Black Waves
5. Into the Sleep
6. Born of Nothing
7. The Final Failure
The CD version of Walk Beyond the Dark will come as a six-panel, fold-out digipack, featuring the haunting otherworldly artwork of Mariusz Lewandowski. For the vinyl version, a heavyweight 180+ gram double LP, mastered specifically for vinyl and cut at 45rpm for maximum audio fidelity, will come inside a 350gsm heavyweight board single-pocket jacket, sleeved in poly-lined black inner sleeves. The vinyl edition will be available December 13. Pre-orders for both versions are available via the Blood Music site at: https://www.blood-music.com/store.
Outcasts and outsiders since the very beginning, somehow ABIGAIL WILLIAMS is still thriving and still creating, while so many of their critics and competitors have fallen by the wayside. With Walk Beyond the Dark, ABIGAIL WILLIAMS take their rightful crown as the lords of American black metal. Surrender yourself to the mysterious void, and walk beyond the dark.
ABIGAIL WILLIAMS will be touring North America with Ensiferum, Kalmah and Aenimus. Dates will be announced shortly.

In his earliest years, Rivers was a huge KISS fan; Brian was a big Black Sabbath fan; Pat worshipped at the altar of Van Halen and Rush; Scott loved Slayer and Metallica. The last time this vein of harder rock was mined by Weezer was on their much-loved 2002 albumMaladroit; Van Weezer is primed to take that album’s sonics many steps further courtesy of producer Suzy Shinn. “The End of the Game” is Weezer’s first new song since this year’s release ofWeezer (The Black Album), as well as their covers album, Weezer (The Teal Album), whose streaming numbers have surpassed 100 million.Weezer has sold 10 million albums in the U.S., and over 35 million records worldwide since their debut album’s release in 1994.

Portland “Bubblegum Doom” Duo
FOX MEDICINE Releasing New LP ‘Procédures Mystiques’ on November 8
Produced By Toshi Kasai (Melvins, Helmet, Tool, Big Business)
Genre- Noise Rock/Bubblegum Doom/ Alternative Rock/Stoner Rock
For Fans Of: Sonic Youth, PJ Harvey, Electric Wizard, Helmet, Death from Above 1979, Melt Banana
“…”Comfort Pony”, three minutes of Melvins-cum-Throbbing Gristle mastery that clangs and clatters with the best of early Soundgarden when the fabled Seattle outfit could still offer up a proper piss take.”– PopMatters
Catch the two-piece sprinkling a delightfully strange brand of hypnotic and fuzzy noise rock on their Bubblegum Doom Tour.
Fox Medicine is a two-piece band from Portland, OR. They specialize in a boutique sound called Bubblegum Doom – a noisy distortion cocktail inspired by founding forefathers such as Melvins, Sonic Youth and Throbbing Gristle.
The duo is set to release their new album PROCÉDURES MYSTIQUES on November 8th.
A music video for the first single “Comfort Pony” is premiering on PopMatters:
Neezy Dynamite (guitar/vocals) says, ” This video is about magic and returning to nature, rather than upholding some materialistic ideals.”
Neezy has been tinkering with her songwriting and sound for years in various underground bands until one night she met Vanny Keeps (drums/vocals) at a show. The two bonded musically and started recording “fuzzy DIY demos” and playing shows in late 2016.
Just as the band was getting tighter, they ran into their dream producer Toshi Kasai (Melvins, Helmet, Tool, Big Business), while eating a burger at a North Portland venue. After 5 days in the studio together, Kasai claims that Fox Medicine is “the weirdest band” he’s ever worked with, and describes their sound as “Black Sabbath with J-Pop Vocals”. The result of the collaboration is an intriguing first studio album, definitive of the fictional genre.
“PROCÉDURES MYSTIQUES is a strawberry milkshake you drink as you walk through a dark alley of some creepy fairy tale,” Neezy hypothesizes. She insists that the record has therapeutic properties, saying, “I hope this record is a soothing experience for people, the way a certain heaviness and intensity is so nourishing when nothing else will do. But also, it’s kind of silly because life is not that serious”. On stage, the band is whimsical and hypnotic, loud chaos reeling you in, one strange song at a time.
You can catch Fox Medicine touring on the west coast for the rest of 2019.

“I’m Alive” is a powerful reminder that as long as we’re breathing, we have the ability to push through any obstacle we face in life.
“With plenty of crushing rhythms and face-melting guitar computations, this empowering track serves to remind us that we can power through any obstacle in life as long as we’re alive and kicking. “– Alternative Press
“The concept for the video came from our director, Josiah Moore,” says guitarist Bill Brynda. “He wanted to incorporate a Sci-Fi video game feel with Tony (vocals) as the main character. The video takes you through as he suits up to prepare to fight the impending monster. We were totally stoked on his idea because in many ways Tony’s character exemplifies the meaning of the song.“
With influences consisting of Metallica, Trivium, & Lamb of God, Hallow Point infuses modern day melodic hooks with the songwriting progressions, reminiscent of their forefathers. Their intense and energetic live show has given them the opportunity to share stages with bands like DevilDriver, Ice Nine Kills, Like Moths to Flames and Bad Wolves.
The band intends to forge new paths in coming years as they continue their rigorous touring schedule around the continent to support their new LP. Hallow Point is determined to push the boundaries of what is considered possible within their genre by bringing their music to the masses. It is the band’s highest hope that fans will find solace, comfort, motivation, and empowerment through their music.
